Column by Jim Clark

By Jim Clark

Let's see. Where were we?

It was late in 2006 when I wrote a column saying I was leaving to become the editor in Williston, within the same company.

Prophetically, the last sentence of that column read, "You won't get rid of me that easily." I was referring to the fact that my column would still appear occasionally, not realizing that someday I would be sitting here in the same office doing it again.

So my first couple of days I drove around to see what had changed.

First, I have to find someplace to stay, so I remembered that some new condos had been approved near Strickland Park. Since I'm a big youth sports fan, that would be ideal, so I drove up to take a look.

Oops. Nothing there but a vacant lot.

So then I thought I would cross the highway and see what the new hospital looked like.

Oops, Nothing there but a sign.

So I headed back to the office, where we have a memo on the wall saying that the intersection of Park and U.S. 19 would be closed for two weeks starting March 19 (this was on May 7).
